Enjoy Some Southern Hospitality at the 2023 NAPB Meeting

This year's NAPB meeting is hosted by Clemson University.

Registration is now open for the National Association of Plant Breeders meeting, hosted by Clemson University in Greenville, SC from July 16-20. The event will focus on “Southern Hospitality Through Food and Agriculture,” and will celebrate the culinary and agricultural heritage of South Carolina.

Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about the intersection of food and agriculture in the southeast, witness participatory plant breeding in action, and explore the future of plant breeding through multidisciplinary collaboration and innovation. The conference will be held in person, with interactive opportunities such as a pre-conference tour of Clemson’s research farms, engaging sessions, visits to specialty crop operations, and networking activities in the evening.

All registration and program details can be found on the official meeting web page for NAPB2023. Students and early career scientists are encouraged to present a poster at the meeting. Abstract and poster submission guidelines can be found on the conference website.

The 2022 NAPB meeting was the first in-person gathering for the association since the pandemic began, and was held at Iowa State University in Ames, IA.
